The stupid oil companies should have jumped on this and started the conversion years ago. But that would have eliminated the need to have boots on the ground in the middle east... Oil prices are our jizya fees.

Wasn't the jizyah tax lower than the Roman Empire tax?

Now, who benefits from taxes and is exempt from paying these days? Unfortunately for most of us, there is no free market but instead an artificial system of price supports and payoffs. If markets are to work, goods must reflect actual prices as much as possible.
